Updating windows defender
Stay always safe from viruses and malware Your computer is vulnerable to malware, therefore it’s important to protect it properly.
Malware comes in various forms, and it can cause performance loss and many other security-related issues.
Protection against viruses was added in Windows 8; Windows Defender in Windows 8 resembles Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) and uses the same virus definitions.
This gallery will show off that new look and a new companion app from the Windows Security team, called the Windows Defender Hub, that brings you fresh security related content to stay up to date on what the security team is doing about the stream of threats against our systems.
Along with the updated UI, the Windows Defender Security Center also has a new system tray icon that shows a live status of your systems protection state and an option to get alerts and routine notices delivered to the Action Center.
But you don’t need to be a security expert to help secure your device and understand the protections you have in place.
In the Windows 10 Creators Update, we will introduce a new experience called the Windows Defender Security Center to make it is easier for you to view and control the security protections you choose and better understand the security features already protecting you on your Windows 10 device.
